Congratulations to Masters student Vincent Murwira. He has completed his dissertation research project and it is now available for public viewing.
There is a trend with postgraduate students to present their work in non-traditional ways and we encourage that here at AUT.
Vincent is an experienced reporter and camera operator with many years in the field in South Africa before he arrived in New Zealand.
For this project he conducted lots of interviews; many of them with faces that New Zealand news insiders (and members of the public) will know well.
The project is, IMHO (declaration, I was a supervisor), well executed and certainly just about as up-to-date as it is possible to be in the rapidly changing world of print, broadcast and online journalism today.
I’d also like to express my appreciation to all our colleagues who were willing to give their time to Vincent. Without their participation, of course, a project like this is not possible.
Vincent’s site The Open Newsroom is now open and he’s hoping to keep it fresh through blogging regularly.
Please take a look. Vincent and I would value some feedback.
